FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The headquarters for the police department’s West Precinct facility at 5500 Charlotte Pike is now formally known as the Chief Joe D. Casey Building.
Casey, whose 38-year Nashville police career included 16-years as chief, joined his family and a large crowd of well-wishers, including former Mayor Richard Fulton, Mayor Karl Dean, Chief Steve Anderson and former Chief Emmett Turner, at today’s dedication ceremony.
In remarks to the audience, Casey, now age 86, said that he was thankful for all those who helped him along the way, including “the people of Davidson County, the greatest people in the world to work for.”
Casey joined the Nashville police department in 1951. He became Chief in 1973 and remained in that position until his retirement in 1989.
